Hey guys, here's my AK build from Elysium. Pretty simple build using a Denix replica, a bullet kit (from RPF run) and bullet encoder kit (from RPF run). So nothing too clever on my part as all the hard work has been done by others. So a great build for newbies like me. Ok, on with the show...

The goal...

I managed to pick up a broken Denix AK with wood stock for pretty cheap (about $50USD). It had a few broken bits but I already had a folding stock Denix AK-47 that would now donor parts for the build.

A piece of metal that holds the mag in place had broken off...

So used a small piece of metal to replace it...

Had to cut a few bits off the AK to fit the Bullet Encoder and to get it more screen accurate...

Had to file down part of the AK for the encoder to fit properly...

Decals applied. The kit did't come with decals for the switch, so I had to make do with some spare decals I had kicking around. You'll recognize them if you look hard enough...

Finally some weathering...

And here she is all finished...

All-in-all it turned out pretty good. Might have gone a little light on the weathering, which is kinda funny because I'm always so conscious not to over-do it. But I'm happy enough with the finished prop.

Looks good on the gun wall. Please ignore the other unfinished guns...

Re: Elysium AK-47 Build

Nice job. If you need another bullet, I have a kit for trade in the junkyard. No way I can finish it the way you did ;-).

Re: Elysium AK-47 Build

That's nicely done. One thing that's off though is that an AKM was used in the film and not an AK47.

Been a while but I updated this with full screen pics - sooo much easier than clicking on each pic!!! Who has the time?! ;)

An ugly rifle made uglier, but I love how it came out!

Well done, sorry I missed the run.

Re: Elysium AK Build

That's awesome, great build. Too bad you couldn't get a real AK (I'm assuming, NZ) and have it be a functional firearm. The prop doesn't appear to be modified enough to affect the functionality of the weapon so having a real working version that's screen-accurate would be incredible! Maybe someday...

Thanks for the compliment. Yeah a real AK would be quite something. As would a real Masada in my Oblivion rifle build and a real Thompson in my PR!
